COVID-19 Update for September 4, 2020 : Pools, Arenas and Fitness Centres

As Stage 3 of the Province’s COVID-19 restart plan continues to move forward, the City of Greater Sudbury has developed plans for the safe reopening of municipal pools and fitness centres.

Pools

The schedule for reopening municipal public pools is as follows:

  • Howard Armstrong Recreation Centre pool will reopen to the public on September 8
  • Nickel District will reopen September 10
  • R.G. Dow and Onaping will reopen September 14
  • Due to a mechanical issue, Gatchell is expected to open later in September. An exact date will be provided in the coming weeks. 

For more information about Pool reopenings, please visit the Pools page.

Fitness Centres

Work is also underway to prepare the City’s five fitness centres to open beginning September 8.

Regular updates and information on safety protocols for the various facilities will be posted to www.greatersudbury.ca/play/recreational-facilities

For more information about Fitness Centre reopenings, please visit the Fitness Centres page.

Arenas

To help accommodate demand for summer and early fall ice use, the current schedule for reopening arenas is as follows:

  • T.M. Davies Community Centre and Arena and Garson Community Centre will reopen September 7
  • Raymond Plourde Arena will reopen September 14
  • Chelmsford Arena will reopen September 21. 

Residents are asked to visit www.greatersudbury.ca/leisure and use the online ice reservation system to book ice time at either of these arenas or at Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, which reopened August 11.

Community Centres

The City of Greater Sudbury has a number of leisure and recreation programs that take place in your local community centres. We offer programs such as yoga, photography, open gym nights, tai chi and even taekwondo! Check out your local community centre for programs, dates and times.

 

 


There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.

 

 

The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
